Arata fitted and dyno tuned today :) PICS ADDED

Well, a good and bad day.

After WAY too long, I took the blade and arata to the Sook and got him to map the bike.

Also did a test on those Factory Pro Velocity stacks to see if mapping them will make any difference....

Stock run on Sook's Dyno - 132.0 rwhp - fitted with Arata - 139.4
Mapped with Arata and stock stacks - 143.3 and mapped with the stacks and arata - 133.7

HOWEVER - the short stacks take longer to get to the power, and also produce less everywhere (except the last 100rpm) so, it is conclusive. The short V.stacks sold by factory pro are useless. Whether on a stock bike, or mapped with a pipe.


Sook did a great job with the bike, and the power is very obvious. I was kind of let down with the final output, as I was hoping for 145 - 148, but I'm only really 1 or 2 hp short of the target, and all in all, I'm not good enough to notice the difference.

Sook said another 954 with 132 rwhp had made 148hp after tuning, so I was hopeful at the start of the day. However, I think that maybe the fact that my bike REALLY needs a tune probably made an impact. It was obvious with the stock pipe that it needs a service, but with the Arata on, it shoves it in your face. It idles very rough, not the smooth sewing machine action I know and love. Bu that is easy to fix

However, as I said, all credit to Sook - he did a fantastic job, and the bike feels amazing to ride, even if it does need a service

Not to mention his patience, he also gave me a great deal on the 2 maps (with and without the short stacks) and a double bubble screen to boot. Needless to say, I will be going back for more goodies

Any Sydney siders looking for a map, I highly recommend his services I'll be booking my service with him in the next few days.

Now, on the bad note (and totally my own stupid fault) I left my Oakley Penny's on the counter under the screen while looking arond the shop, I noticed someone walk in and had this gut feeling to just grab my sunnies. wouldn't ya know it? Next thing I know, they are gone!!!



I couldn't beleive it, they are like $500 in this country - assuming you could actually buy a pair as they are not imported here (the price is of the similar Juliet style) So, sadly that kinda ruined what was otherwise a very worthwhile day.

Re: Arata fitted and dyno tuned today :)

Post a pic of the system. Zee had his headers and muffler polished. After the tuning, the header pipes looked fukin awesome.
Like Zee said, we did a 954 last week that made 148.9 from the same 132 that Zeeman had, and was no where near as rough and didn't have the dip down low. As we do more, I'll let you know how they go, but still, just over 10h.p isn't bad. I was dissapointed myself that it didn't go the same as the other bike. Don't know why it didn't.
Like I told Zee, we had a XR80 walk out the door a few weeks back. Went out the back for a second, came back, GONE. You gotta bolt **** down around here. If I'd have seen him out them there, I'd have warned him.

Re: Arata fitted and dyno tuned today :)

Good to hear that you got the 954 custom mapped. 143hp isn't a slouch either.

I have a set of short stacks on my bike and made 145.3 rwhp, so I'll have to take the bike back in and test the stock vs short on the dyno. Thanks for the info.

Sorry to hear about your Oakleys brother. I might be able to help you on a new set of Oakley Pennys. I have to talk to my buddy, but I can get them for around $150 US. Shipping shouldn't be all that much, so let me know.

When I had my 954 we did before and after dynos (back to back) with Arata and pciii and Dan Kyle map. We got the same SAE 11rwhp and SAE 4rwtrq gains. The gains were everywhere across the range. I do not think you can tune out the dip at 4k as there is a physical piece in the stock pipe that is not in any of the aftermarket pipes but the Hindle. The good news is that you will never hit the "dip" in riding--watch your tach.

I am skeptical that you will get SAE 17rwhp from a pipe and pciii w/map in back to back, same day dynos. If you can do this consistently, you should be working on MotoGp and AMA Superbikes! Good job!

Re: Arata fitted and dyno tuned today :)

I'm going to tak ephoto's of the Arata in the sun tomorrow - they look wicked - Futant saw them today, and was equally blown away! They have a blue/purple colour that fades to gold in parts around the headers and near the bends and it looks so damn horny!!! I just hope it stays looking that good - makes me want to leave my fairings off all the time!!!
